An Indian man who was in a road accident and had been declared dead was found alive in a morgue freezer by his astounded family members the next day.

Srikesh Kumar, 45, was taken to a clinic in a critical condition after being hit by a motorbike in Moradabad, east of the capital New Delhi.  

The electrician was taken to private medical facility after the accident, where a doctor declared him dead on arrival.

He was then transferred to a government hospital for a post-mortem on Friday. 

Police were informed and his body was put in the morgue freezer until his family arrived six hours later.

Chief medical superintendent of Moradabad Dr Shiv Singh said: ‘The emergency medical officer had seen the patient at 3am and there was no heartbeat.  

‘He had examined the man multiple times.’

The medical superintendent said: ‘When a police team and his family came over to initiate the paperwork for the autopsy, he was found alive.’

According to The Times of India, a document was signed by family members agreeing to an autopsy and they had identified the body.

Ms Bala says in a now viral video: ‘He’s not at all dead. How did this happen? Look, he wants to say something, he is breathing.’

Srikesh Kumar, 45, appears to move in the video to the amazement of his family after spending six hours in a morgue fridge and being declared dead the night before

Dr Singh said he was declared dead at the time but in the morning a police team and his family found him alive.

The case was called one of the ‘rarest’ by Dr Singh and said ‘we cannot call it negligence.’ 

He said an investigation has been ordered into how he came to be mistakenly declared dead.

The injured man is still in a coma and being treated at a medical centre in Meerut.      

His sister-in-law Ms Bal, who claimed her brother-in-law was almost killed by being put in a freezer, said he is yet to regain consciousness and that his family will lodge a complaint against the doctors for negligence.
